We are sorry to read of the passing of Mrs. Willis. Please except our deepest condolences. She was a beautiful woman both inside and out. We were blessed to have her as a neighbor for many years. Her love and kindness for our family, especially my children, will be remembered always. My son and I still talk about her wonderful memories of her when she lived next door. I know you are in heaven watching over everyone.
